Hindustan Unilever Limited has decided to withdraw ‘Knorr’ Chinese instant noodles as the product was not approved by FSSAI.
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) handed over to food safety commissioners attending the authority’s central scientific advisory committee meeting in New Delhi last Thursday a blacklist of food products and brands, including Starbucks and Kellogg’s.
As reported by The Indian Express, the list revealed about 500 products that were rejected by FSSAI on account of containing high levels of sugar, caramel, salt or heavy metals, caffeine and iron fillings.
After banning Maggi, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) recently also set its eyes on other products like macaroni and pasta. The FSSAI stated that it was not just Nestle which was under scrutiny but other brands would be checked soon to ensure food safety.
